Fig. B1. Mean annual rainfall (mm) between 1950 and 2013 for the study region in north-central Victoria, Australia. Annual rainfall totals have been averaged across 10 representative weather stations (circles); the dashed line shows the long-term mean annual rainfall, taken across the same stations, over this 64-year period. Gray bars represent the three survey periods: T1 (2002/2003; early drought), T2 (2006/2007; mid drought) and T2 (2011/2012; post drought). Data were obtained from the Bureau of Meteorology website for the following weather stations: Dunolly, Bendigo Prison, Bendigo Airport, Seymour, Wedderburn, Maryborough, Creswick, Euroa, Chiltern and Tatura.
